Michael Bloomberg can now boast that he won a 2020 race, but his first victory may not be the one he most wanted. The former New York City mayor won not a state but the territory of American Samoa, which has only six delegates at stake, reports the AP. Bloomberg will not get them all, however. Rep. Tulsi Gabbard, who represents Hawaii, will get one of the six. Bloomberg spent heavily in Super Tuesday states, but Joe Biden was beating him soundly in the first state results from the South.
